San Diego Central Library Tours - For Teens, 330 Park Blvd, Monday, 16. December 2019

The Teen's Tour is appropriate for youths between the ages of 12-18 (6th grade to 12th grade), visiting the library as a group or class. Depending on your interest and the amount of time you would like to spend with us, your visit may include:

a building tour led by specially trained Docents,
highlights of special spaces in the library that specifically interest teens;
space for your group to have lunch in the library Courtyard.

The minimum ratio of chaperones to youth is 1 to 10; maximum group size is 2 classrooms, plus chaperones. For questions, or if your group has other special needs, or group sizes > 2 classrooms, please contact
You may also request presentations as part of your tour. You may select up to two (2) presentations for your visit. Please indicate whether you would like a presentation and which presentation(s) in your reservation message.

Overview of San Diego Public Library (30 minutes): Students will learn about system-wide resources, programs and services;
Introduction to the Library Catalog (45 minutes): Students will learn how to navigate the online catalog, filter searches and request holds;
Introduction to Articles and Databases (45 minutes): Students will learn how to access and use online databases on a variety of subjects; or
Introduction to Credible Resources (30 minutes): Students will learn how to determine the credibility, accuracy, reliability, relevance and timeliness of sources.

All Tours meet in the library Courtyard, next to the front entrance, at 10:20 am
Most teachers and group leaders allow 75-90 minutes for their visit, plus additional time for lunch. The tour runs approximately 60 minutes, and requires quite a bit of walking. Requests for presentations may extend the time of the visit or shorten the length of the building tour. We recommend allowing time for teens to browse the collection, and explore the space and technology following the tour.
Students can apply for library cards in advance and receive them the day of their visit. To arrange for library cards for your students, please indicate so in your reservation message. Then print out a Library Card Application (English or Spanish) for each of your students. Send the application home with the students, to be filled out by a parent or guardian and returned to you. Applications must be legible, and include the signature and ID number of a parent or guardian in order to be processed.
Submit your completed applications at least two weeks in advance of your visit, to the Central Library - 330 Park Blvd, San Diego, CA 92101.
If your students already have library cards, please ensure that they bring them on the day of your visit in order to check out materials. Materials checked out at the Central Library may be returned to any library branch in San Diego.
Students are welcome to bring **** lunches and eat in the library Courtyard or in the designated eating area in the Pauline Foster Teen Center. If you would like to venture outside the Library, you may wish to picnic at Park at the Park, located within Petco Park, which is across the street, and serves as a neighborhood park during non-event hours. See Padres website for more information.
If you plan to bring group lunches, the Library can provide a non-refrigerated space for closed containers (e.g., coolers, boxes, or plastic tubs). Otherwise please be prepared to carry lunches in backpacks or store them in your vehicles. The Library cannot store bags or purses.
Please visit the Library's Parking page to see parking and transport options.
